Walter van Beirendonck/Wild & Lethal Trash AW1999 Sample Double Layer Mohair Sweater

375.00

Founded in 1993 as an offshoot of his eponymous label, Wild & Lethal Trash was Walter Van Beirendonck’s youthful and future-forward clothing label. It borrowed heavily from club kid culture, dealing out heavy doses of neon clothing, and repurposing cartoon characters in a way that suggested drug-induced euphoria more so than Sunday mornings. The graphics were often bold and chaotic, intentionally lacking a focal point as a way to highlight and repurpose the visual over-saturation created by the internet era.

This sweater layers loose-knit black mohair over its heavy orange wool base and 3M alien patch. The neon orange and 3M detailing were on brand for W.&L.T.’s gleefully hedonistic vision of the future, full of rave-influenced color schemes and visual overstimulation.

Note: This was a sample piece and not otherwise produced.

Condition: 7.5/10. There are two rips in the mohair on the right sleeve.
